by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an economic crisis that we're still cleaning our way out of. so -- so we know what works and we know what doesn't. and governor romney now is a very talented salesman. so in this campaign, he is trying as hard as he can to r
president bill clinton, part of what has made fema so effective is the ability to have the resources in the bank, to have the resources, to get those resources ahead of the storm. because part of the problem is once the storm hits and you're trying to move resources in then you're behind the 8 ball. part of ryan budget, frankly, if we believe that's the approach romney would take says, no, no, you have to come back to us after a storm hits and get the resources you need. that's inefficient and we know that's inefficient. >> of course, we'll get the conversation of the off sets. >> of course. >> that means we have to take -- >> middle class americans. as you've been pointing out, all of a sudden he's nice to first responders when he wasn't so hot on them when we had real labor issues, was he? >> not at all. karen finney, great to have you on "the ed show." thanks so much. remember to answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow and on facebook. >>> coming up, a down and dirty ad from the romney campaign in florida because it's getting d

's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're supposed to do here, but the reality is, dana, is that, you know, either you listen to what the weather reports are. government's not go

starting here with george bush 41 slamming bill clinton in 199 and then george w. bush's famous 2004 wind surfing ad against john kerry. >> presidential candidate on the left stood for military action in the persian gulf while the candidate on the right agreed with those who opposed it. one of these candidates is bill clinton. unfortunately, so is the other. in which direction would john kerry lead? kerry voted for the iraq war. opposed it. supported it. and now opposes it again. john kerry. whichever way the wind blows. chris: funny thing is the guy who made that wind surfing ad that's bush's advisor mark mckinnon worked also for john mccain in 2008. and here's the recycled hand he work for mccain against primary opponent mitt romney. >> mitt romney seems to change positions like the wind. he tells florida he supports the bush tax cuts. but as massachusetts governor romney refused to take a position on the bush tax cuts. where does mitt romney? whichever way the wind blows. chris: and when we come back we've got a perfect storm coming ashore. that could affect things. and we have the big
the biggest endorsement you can get, the best surrogate on this planet is bill clinton. the former president has been all over the country for obama. he's lost his voice he's working so hard. here he was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> there is no better surrogate for anybody than bill clinton. he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents
the presidencies of bill clinton and george w. bush. dan balz of "the washington post" is author of a narrative of the 2008 campaign. and michael duffy of "time magazine" is author of a book about the world's most exclusive fraternity. the name of that book is "the presidents club." michael duffy as these presidents go from being campaigners to being presidents, how are they transformed? >> you know we asked a couple of the presidents who are still alive what they remember the big surprise or the big shock being when they finally stepped from being candidate into the oval office. and they say three things. one is the speed of the decisions come much faster. and unpredictably. they can't control the agenda. the second is, they're all hard. there are no easy ones and they all are fairly outspoken about just how difficult the choices are. basically there are downsides everywhere. and the third thing is that's a little more interesting. just because you make the decision doesn't mean anything happens. when ike took over from truman, truman said "poor ike, he'll think it's just like the army. do thi
throat on tuesday night, but i also think exactly what they're doing -- look, bill clinton wherever they can get him. and going to all of the swing states wherever they can get him. i think more importantly, to actually show real people. in ohio, to have all of the auto workers whose jobs have been saved by the president's rescue of the auto industry, in sharp contrast with what mitt romney wanted to do, which was to let the industry go bankrupt and also in sharp contrast with the absolutely flat-out deceiving ads that mitt romney is running in ohio right now, where he even had to have the ceo of gm and the ceo of chrysler come out to say that they're lies and that he needs to cut it out. i think in ohio, such an important state for mitt romney where the president is leading right now, the obama campaign is doing exactly what they need to be doing. >> at a time like this, the visuals are just as important as the rhetoric. thank you both, maria, ana, nice to see you. >>> it is the other big story, superstorm sandy. it left behind widespread disruption and is blamed for dozens of deat
for the candidates. their wives, the former president bill clinton, the house speaker john boehner all campaigning down to the wire. cnn is covering their every move. our correspondents are in key locations in critical states. any one of which could ultimately decide who will be the next president of the united states. we're going to -- let's go to colorado right now. mitt romney is speaking there but jim acosta is there setting the stage. tell us what's going on. >> reporter: mitt romney just arrived here just a few moments ago. he has been delivering his closing argument to the crowd here and he's been doing that all day long. waking up in new hampshire, moving on to iowa and here in colorado for two stops. he has been going after the president on that new unemployment data, he has also been talking about what he would do if he's elected president. talking about cutting the budget, eliminating the president's health care law and tapping into domestic energy resources. i have to tell you the one message that they have been hitting hard in the last final days of this campaign, they have been going
margins. we will see bill clinton campaign up in akron, ohio, even further north and east of cleveland. a high point in this state. >> what we talk a lot about is what we add journalists and the talking class talk about what regular americans, ohio and they're talking about. of all the people i spoke with yesterday, only one person brought up hurricane sandy. a lot of attention was paid to michael bloomberg's endorsement. the big picture, do those kinds of things resinate? do they matter, do you think? >> i think on a text tual level, the message coming out of hurricane sandy was bipartisanship. even if they're not monitoring events as closely here as they are in the east, they're getting kind of a good feeling about the president's ability to work with people on the other side of the section. and as far as mike bloomberg goes, viewish voters are important in ohio and jewish business voters, they look at somebody like a mike bloomberg and that gives them more of a comfort level with president obama. >> i think that's true. they've been driving all around and watching some of the local
canceling plans to attend a rally in florida with bill clinton and instead headed back to the white house to monitor the storm from the situation room. he canceled an event in green bay, wisconsin scheduled for tomorrow. >> the last thing the president and i want to do is campaign and get in the way of anything. the most important thing is people's safety and health and property being saved here. >> the former president, the unofficial secretary of explaining stuff, took to the stage in the sunshine state solo. republican mitt romney will campaign today out of the storm's path in the battleground state of ohio yesterday offering these words for those in sandy's way. >> i think that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people that find themselves in harm's way. >> what remains to be seen is how this october surprise will impact an election that is now just eight days away with early voting already under way. we want to get straight to the latest update, and for that nbc news meteorologist d
unconstitutional. and even wants to completely abolish student loans for college. no wonder bill clinton and the washington post both endorse john delaney for his deep understanding of job creation. he'll be “an unusually effective congressman.” delaney: it's not about politics. it's about doing what's right to help the middle class. i'm john delaney, and i approve this message. >> coming up tonight at 11:00 it is the local election question that has a maryland tied up in knots. question 7 -- casino gambling. will dollars really ahead toward schools? tonight, we separate the fact from fiction. what you are really voting for tonight at 11:00. >> and doug is back to give us the forecast for the weekend. >> i forgot i get to tell you about turning the clock back in. one more time. when? tomorrow night? before you go to bed. you turn it back in our. here is the difference. set reject the sunrise is at 6:39 a.m. early next week, we will see partly cloudy, chilly weather nice weather for election day and maybe rain next wed.. >> and you can get updates. >> anytime you want. >> join
is cutting back on his campaign appearances today. he was to appear with bill clinton in florida this morning. instead he will be in washington monitoring the storm from the white house. mitt romney is in the midwest today with stops in three battleground states, starting with an event in ohio. then he's headed to dive and por -- davenport, iowa, and then wisconsin. we will have live coverage of governor romney in ohio, set to start at 11:50 eastern. we are scheduled to have live coverage of a rally for the president in youngstown, ohio. he was supposed to appear with bill clinton. instead vice-president joe biden will take its place. live coverage of that event at 3:30 eastern this afternoon on c-span.

, virginia and bill clinton is leading the rally for president obama. >> >> we want to remind you that you get an extra hour of sleep all banks to daylight savings time. the clocks will be turned back one hour so you might want to do this tonight before you go to bed. >> take a lie look outside and we are enjoying the view or run the bay. we have plenty of sunshine this morning. >> it is just a beautiful star for the weekend and there's plenty of sunshine. tomorrow will be even warmer. it looks like we can finish off the week with showers. >> there is widespread 50s for the inland valley but as we set the hour ahead it will be 60's and 7 is for the north bay. about 3:00 p.m. it will be in low 70's and this evening will be are around 60's. los gatos will be at 75 degrees and 73 degrees for cupertino. we are expecting mid-70s for walnut creek and danville. upper 60's for downtown san francisco and low 70's for san bruno. for those of you heading to the north bay it will be about 75 degrees for some rosa. it will be committed seven is for the napa valley. there is a high pressure ridge that i
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
-- >> and minnesota, minnesota is not even a key swing state. you've got bill clinton going in because a new poll shows mitt romney within the margin of error in minnesota. plus, you have some information about some space where the republicans are about to start rushing in and putting up campaign ads that are not states that the obama team thought they would have to worry about one week out. >> we're going to go into election day not knowing. i don't care how rabid a partisan you are, we're going to go into election day not knowing who is going to win this. the race is simply too close, too many variables and the storm has a lot of new ones. we just can focus on what we see. one thing we see is democrats are playing a little bit more definition than they thought they would. and if you bring those states in to the electoral college picture, minnesota, pennsylvania, maybe michigan, where republican allies of mitt romney are now going on the offensive, it changes the electoral college outlook quite a bit. not saying governor romney's going to win any of those. they say we're not going to lose these
. the president is very singular about not having somebody stand on stage with him. i bet you bill clinton will be standing on stage with him during the entire time when barack obama speaks because clinton is considered a real concrete asset that can change undecided votes. >> speaking of changing let's go back to mitt romney now. he seems to be moving more toward the middle in these closing days, not a surprise to the critics who called him a flip-flopper from the beginning. what do you think this will mean for those republicans who hoped he'd stay more conservative? >> let me quote the virginia governor bob mcdonnell who is a major supporter of mitt romney who said that his own elections are won in the middle. you remember his own press person, romney during the primaries said we're going to do etch a sketch, that is, go to the right to get the nomination and then have to go to the have to get independents and moderates to win -- to the right to get independents and moderates to win the election. those who are for him will say he's pragmatic and those who oppose him will say once again y
appearances and sort of blue collar areas to people like bill clinton and joe biden. but young people, they aren't watching tv, they aren't consuming media in the same way that older voters are. only somewhere between 24% and 28% of young people, according to pew, watched your traditional television. so the campaigns are targeting them digitally. social is big in this election for persuasion. so obama has sort of done that while leaving the campaign appearances and sort of blue collar areas to people like bill clinton and joe biden. but young people, they aren't watching tv, they aren't consuming media in the same way that older voters are. only somewhere between 24% and 28% of young people, according to pew, watched your traditional television. so the campaigns are targeting them digitally. social is big in this election for persuasion. they want to put out infographics people can share on facebook and twitter. at the end of the day it comes down to traditional get out the vote efforts which are already under way. early voting started in iowa, for instance, on september 27th so peopl
. it was restored and then upgraded to a cabinet level position under bill clinton, and then reorganized under homeland security to an ancillary position within the broader framework there. so the problem is when you have competing forms of disaster for our attention, one which is natural, another one which is so-called manmade, you have a kind of moral triage going on in the government and that's problematic. the democrats have got it right. you put fema on its own bottom, allow it to address federal emergencies, and then you deliver resources to states and to local governments from the central organization of the government. yes, you're right. i think julian epstein is absolutely right. the democrats have been inclined to help those who are in need, and this is a challenge to us and a choice for americans here. what kind of government do you want? one that stands behind you when you are in trouble, or the one that kicks you to the curb and pours salt in your already open wounds and tells you you're on your own? that's the kind of choice we're facing here. >> michael makes a really good point
bill clinton said today. take a listen to this. >> sure. >> and then we went to florida last night, and he got up this morning and called me, he said, i got to go back right now. this storm is getting out of hand, i got to handle it, and i said, mr. president, that is the right call. thank you for doing that. >> michael, if we've learned one thing about this president, it is that he is steadfast and strong in a crisis. it doesn't matter if he's commissioning the killing of bin laden or leading emergency planning at a time like this, does it? >> no, it doesn't, and it's one of the advantages of being president at a time like this. and i think -- >> but, michael, i would -- i'm thinking of the contrast between this president and, of course, the former president who was embarrassing, as you will remember, george w. bush, in relation to hurricane katrina. >> lessons learned. katrina was a lesson throughout the federal government of what not to do, not just at the presidential level, but operationally well below the president. and even for the states, quite frankly. the governor and the
. george bush, bill clinton tao too. george w. bush put it in the bowels of the homeland security. then remember what happened with katrina. >> bill: down in san antonio hello, kathy. >> caller: good morning, bill. thank you for giving us a sane alternative. >> bill: to you know what. yes. >> caller: i wanted to say one of the problems was -- >> bill: hey, turn your radio or tv down in the background. >> caller: sorry. >> bill: little distracting. that's it. all right. >> caller: there are problems, situations that are too vast for the states. one being -- which was one i think one of the first accomplishments of the obama administration was the development and the dissemination of the vaccine for that new virus that popped up, h1n1. it killed the group in between and that was an unbelievable accomplishment and the democrats never brag about it. >> bill: i forgot about that. but there are many, many, many roles where things -- look at our federal interstate highway system, right? look at the air traffic air-t
travel for three days, his surrogate was bill clinton who is about as good as a surrogate to get out there and get the base -- >> they did not stop trying to win votes in those states. gwen: this week we saw talk of an expanded map. pennsylvania, minnesota. is that true? >> it's not going to work. they can try it. gwen: republicans are saying we can win pennsylvania. >> do i believe it's tighter than it was earlier? gwen: yes. >> i do. but is it going to shrink fast enough? no. partly because when you think about those states, what do they have in common? the democratics of those states is much -- demographics of those states is much more towards romney. there has been very little work done to sort of laying the groundwork. >> it may be slightly more likely than jim mussina's plan a year ago to expand the map into arizona and georgia, but not a lot more. gwen: the other question i have for your guys, is so how late are we going to be up on tuesday? >> i think we'll know by midnight. >> you think? >> yep. >> wow, that is very good. i hope that is true. i don't feel like we've known at
. she's lost to us, but he's gotten the most trusted man in america, his name is bill clinton, right now according to recent polling. he has general colin powell who has long been one of the most trusted people in the country, and probably the savviest pol, the mayor of new york. >> the most important point you were in the middle of making, the endorsements would have -- the nonendorsements would have actually been a bigger deal in some ways, and this doesn't take away from anything and the president is able to use powell. but bloomberg staying on the sidelines, it would have been his way of saying -- i don't think bloomberg would have endorsed romney. getting the endorsement is i think a sign that these guys think, number one, they want to be with winners. both of them are very i think careful guys when they throw their endorsement out there. so i think it says something -- >> what would you rather have, "the des moines register" or mayor bloomberg? >> it's not even close. you would want bloomberg. the timing of bloomberg, too. couldn't have come at a better time. >> say question to you
on this planet is bill clinton. the former president has been all over the country for obama. he's lost his voice he's working so hard. here he was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton, and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> when she was d
